Southwest of Sugar Land, TX, 10″ of rain has been observed just within the past few hours.
The flood threat will continue through late tonight/early tomorrow morning, as cells will continue to “train” over the same areas.
A flash flood watch has been issued for Chambers, coastal Galveston, coastal Harris, Fort Bend, inland Brazoria, inland Galveston, and inland Harris and Wharton counties until 2 AM CDT.
The fact that it is nighttime makes this an even more dangerous situation, as flood waters become even harder to see.
Remember, turn around, don’t drown!
